The answer to the above question is a resounding no. Arthur Adams — a.k.a. The Lazy Songwriter, a.k.a. Blammos guy, a.k.a. Double A — is actually a pretty prolific songwriter. Not like Ryan Adams prolific, but he keeps himself busy, nonetheless. By the way, I made up that last alias. If Art ever needs a hip-hop psuedonym, however, Double A would be a good one. And it would work well with mine: Oral B. Fo' shizzle.
Anyway, Mr. Adams recently sent a missive intended for Casey that ended up in my inbox since I still receive all his Seven Days e-mail for some reason. I forwarded it on to Cap'n Contrarian but I thought you folks might like to see it too. I don't think Arthur will mind — we go waaaay back. Here goes:
We are in the running for a CMJ showcase contest
through AmieStreet.com. We'll get a showcase slot, a
hotel stay and 10,000 if we win! The first
elimination round ends next weekend and relies soley
on fan voting...so please go and vote for us here:
You will need to create an Amie Street account, but
don't worry, it's simple and harmless...we promise...
We'll probably send some more reminders and status
reports out later in the week...
Thanks so much!
So, in the words of P Diddy — the "South Park" version, anyway — Vote or Die, Bitch.
